    Hi, I got job offers from both Brookhaven memorial hospital and Mather hospital. I am confused on which one to pick. Does anyone know which hospital is to better to work at? Thank you for your time

    "No, Brookdale is not on strike they are holding demonstrations because their healthcare benefits are up in limbo. Some of the nurses were very angry and didn't show up to work so they needed to fill the spots with per diem nurses."

    if you dont call that s strike i dont know what that was

    around low to mid 20's. Albany med low 20's but you make it up with shift diff if you are doing evening/ night shift. also being on time u get extra $ each pay period

    I thought brookdale was on a strike last month. An agency sent out email looking for per diem nurses of any position to come fill in the openings. I wonder how they are doing now...

    Albany med is always hiring new grad. They got a new grad orientation once a month. I always see a different group each month. The only down side is this hospital pays really low.. but if you are looking for a place to start. Albany med might be a good starting point.

    I grad from Adelphi last yr. The program is alright. The clinical prof doesnt let you do much in the clinical with so many restrictions .. this and that. You'll learn to a lot more once you get to your last class-professionalism thats when you follow your own preceptor and you get hands on to learn how to use what your learn in class. I think most of the lecture profs I had from before already left the school for various reasons. You should ask around which prof is good and what not. But the big thing abt adelphi is the exam they give you in class has NOTHING to do with the NCLEX.. The classroom tests are harder (it depends on the prof I got some tough ones) once you grad you really have to study the nclex yourself. Kaplan is a waste of money so is the ATI they make you use in class .. thats BS too I say study from Sandras and Lippincott for Nclex .. all in all .. Adelphi's program is okay... you just MUST study hard cuz you have to get a B and above and you are allow to fail ONE class thats all.. Good Luck.. !!

    You can try applying it in person but I found that to make no difference than to apply online or via email. It is VERY time consuming even if you have a friend who drives and drops you off to every hospital. Hey you never know it didnt work for me it might work for you. If you get tired of filling out applications, shot the HR an email with cover letter and resume. Eventually, someone will see your resume and fwd to a manager.

    You got to apply to more hospitals. Back when I grad last summer finding a job was almost impossible. I applied to so many hospitals that I lost count. Getting your RN license should help with the job hunt. I heard that the job mkt for new grad is opening up more in the city. Interfaith has opening and takes a few new grad here and there, but orientation is short. Sloan-Kettering takes ONLY employee referral, and their orientation is very good. (friends told me) I dont work in the city but working in upstate is pretty good. The orientation is awesome. Everyone is helpful. All of the patients are very pleasant and nice. They dont mind having a new nurse around to take care of them. Well, I dont know what else to tell you besides to keep applying and have someone to work on your resume and cover letter. It will be a while until they get back to you (or not. some places dont even send a rejection letter) I dont wanna tell you to try nursing home or LTC most of the places required 1 yr exp, and if you do get hired, there is pretty much no orientation and you are on your own. I personally dont think is a good place to start your 1st job. However, if you need to pay the loan and get no choice, take the job. Otherwise, I would keep applying. Once again good luck on your job hunt.
